    Bought my TH42PWD6 and DMR-E55 two months ago (from Krish AV in Chiswick as they're local) then just under 60 days later sent a claim off to Barclaycard for the amount the price has dropped. Three days later, got a letter confirming my claim has been successful and my Barclaycard has been credited with £275.

    Very, very chuffed and would heartily recommend anyone to buy now with Barclaycard rather than waiting to see if the price will drop, because if it does you win and if it doesn't you've still got the kit sooner than you would have done.

    Yes, Barclaycard price promise is a great thing.

    Recently ordered my plasma from av-sales, used the Nationwide card to take avail of the extra year's warranty. Was really tempted to use the Barclaycard because of the price promise, but I think I've got a good deal and only time will tell if I've made the right decision.

    Just waiting to get word back from av-sales regarding delivery and then I'll be drilling holes in the wall :)

    Hi,

    The price promise is good, but a lot of people do not know that they also offer 2 years extended warranty on top of that supplied with the equipment (used to be 1 year extended warranty until a couple of months ago) :thumbsup:

    So if you can not get that elusive price match from JL - Get yourself a barclarcard for the next best deal (plus they will price match with the internet)

    For another thread mentioning Barclaycard, and not giving price match if the company already has it's own pricematch (i.e. JL), just make sure you are matching on an internet price (which JL won't :D )

    Hope that is of help for people

    PS They have dropped the xx number of days free insurance though :thumbsdow however you usually have cover from your home contents

    I think you'll find that projectors/plasmas are excluded from the extended warranty with Barclaycard...

    Yes, I can also confirm that projectors/plasmas are excluded from Barclaycard's extended warranty. I got a confirmation in writing from barclaycard confirming this.

    With projectors/plasmas the only sweetner one gets using barclaycard is the price promise.

    Damn, that has scuppered my plans :mad:

    If you read their TOC's it says maximum claim in 12 months is £5000, perhaps 2 years ago, when plasma's cost more than this, I would of understood it but now !!!! when you can buy a plasma for less than some 32" CRT's.

    Anybody know of another credit card that gives extended warranty that includes Plasmas - if not - might go for DLP RP telly that cost's more than the plasmas that I was considering -just to FTU :smashin:

    Cheers

    JohnyPannic,

    does nationwide give pricematch as well??

    I would use JL and pricematch with barclaycard against the internet, but they don't do one of the plasma's that I am interested in

    with regards to Barclaycard, isn't it supprising (not) that they don't cover the equipment that goes wrong :mad:
